Also, this tour would be killer if it were the year 2001.

That looks like a good tour. Shame it's only NA. Hopefully with Chi making good progress Deftones could possibly release Eros in the near future (by which I do mean within the next year or so, although it depends on Chi's recovery).

With System of a Down being an early favorite of mine, and Deftones being a band I've consistently loved since I was fourteen, I feel as if I have to go to this...despite the massive amounts of douchebaggery I feel will be present in the crowd.

So fucking pumped for this. Love both bands and give no fucks. To me, SoaD was all of the good things about the "nu metal" movement, and was one of the few bands from that scene that I would call truly "original". They were great at what they did and I still appreciate them for that. Toxicity is still an album that I love to blast in my car.

And Deftones are always fucking great.

So you want to "pay respect" then you better bring your fucking wallet because you are gonna see one of the most expensive and horrible live acts ever! Besides the only arguable good album they ever made is toxicity.
